Postponement would work in Obama’s favor

The huge ‘Frankenstorm’ set to hit the northeast coast before Halloween threatens to cause widespread disruption – but could it serve to delay the election and stall Mitt Romney’s momentum going into the final days of the presidential campaign?

Hurricane Sandy was recently downgraded to a category one, however, as IB Times reports, “Computer models are predicting that Hurricane Sandy will meet up with another storm system, which could produce the grave “perfect storm” that could potentially devastate the North East Coast.”

Experts are predicting that the “Frankenstorm” could “become the worst to hit the U.S. Northeast in 100 years if current forecasts are correct.”

On the face of it, Hurricane Sandy is likely to be more of a concern amongst the Obama camp. For a start, if it does make landfall it’s almost guaranteed to hit areas on the coast where Obama is dominant.

Furthermore, a recent poll conducted by Ipsos for The Weather Channel found that Mitt Romney supporters are more likely to vote in bad weather.

“Among registered voters, those who plan to vote for Obama are more likely than Romney voters to say that bad weather conditions would have a significant or moderate impact on their getting to the polls (28 percent vs. 19 percent),” the survey found.

However, the hurricane is also set to impact key swing states where Romney is seen as having momentum.

Due to Obama’s greater focus on having his supporters vote early, others have pointed out that bad weather on election day could be disastrous for Romney.
